Note: Chef Craig's is a sponsor of this website, but has no effect on our ratings and reviews.

One the newest jerky brands on the market is Chef Craig's Beef Jerky. A product of CJM Products, it's based out of West Kingston, RI.

It's the idea of Craig Mitchell, who a few years ago, had sent me samples of his own homemade jerky, with the intent of launching a business someday. Mitchell received his Culinary Arts degree from Johnson & Wales University, and has been cooking professionally since 1978.

As of this review, the only flavor Chef Craig's offers is this Original.

How Beef Jerky Can Fit Into Your Diet

By Dundalk Dan's Beef Jerky

Working hard on that summer beach bod? If yes then you shouldn't have to settle for chalky shakes or frozen tofu meals. Dundalk Dan's Awesome Beef Jerky breaks down diets that work with your jerky-loving cravings, not against it. (Of course, always consult your doctor before making any changes to your diet.)

PALEO DIET–aka the "Caveman Diet", our beef jerky was made for this lifestyle. Unlike the cavemen though, we use only high quality, USDA approved beef. Plus, we hear cavemen hated nitrites and MSG as much as we do!

GLUTEN-FREE DIET–Diagnosed with Celiac Disease? Told your gut can't handle gluten? Or maybe you just don't like the grogginess that comes with wheat? Whatever your reasoning, we can assure you that NONE of our beef jerky flavors will break your diet.

21 DAY FIX–If you've made the first step towards getting your body into shape with Team Beachbody, you'll want to fill those containers up with as much flavor as possible! Our beef jerky is packed with tasty strips of flavor-packed.

LOW-CARB–Dr. Atkins was definitely onto something when his diet craze hit the world years ago. However, people quickly realized that serotonin is what carbs and happiness are made of so what's the point of being skinny if you're not happy, right? All our flavors have JUST enough carbs to keep you on track while not making you sad.

HIGH-PROTEIN DIET–Bulking up this year? Are a chiseled 6-pack, cut-off tank tops, and sweatbands in your future? Well, you're going to need more than dry peanut butter protein shakes to keep you on track! Each of our flavors contains 26 grams of protein per pack! You'll be ripping t-shirts and getting gym dates in no time.

AWESOME DIET–No, we didn't make this diet up, we simply gave it a name. If your summer goal is to just be you then the Awesome Diet is perfect! You were awesome yesterday, you're awesome now, and you’ll be awesome tomorrow. You know what would make you even more awesome though? Dundalk Dan’s Awesome Beef Jerky in your pantry!

Joe's Wicked Good Beef Jerky is a brand owned by Joe's Wicked Good Jerky Corporation, based out of Redding, CA. It was started by the husband and wife duo of Joe Nixt and Traci Nixt, who launched the brand in October 2014.

At the time, Joe had been making his own jerky for over 20 years. He's shared it with friends and co-workers from his contracting business. When Traci lost her secretarial position, the couple decided to make a go at running a jerky company.

This "Wicked Hot" is made with Ghost Peppers and Habaneros, and is the hottest flavor Joe's Wicked makes. The package says, "Warning: extremely hot".
